    Buddy vs. Duff

    Duff is losing me with his superior attitude. We get it, he went to pastry school and worked in restaurants but not everyone has those advantages. The truth is that I would much rather eat Buddy’s slice of cake than a flavorless ile flotant. Nobody likes plain steamed merengue. In addition, the wedding cake challenge was to make a cake for a bunch of future brides. Buddy was right that the right thing was to showcase multiple techniques. I hated the fondant work but Duff didn’t have to focus on that when the piping was beautiful and the flowers were also. I personally hated Duff’s cake. The seahorses didn’t look like the pictures at all and he used inedible materials. I guess I’m just too traditional because I would much prefer Buddy’s flowers on my hypothetical wedding cake. Finally, my brother is from Baltimore and has had one of Duff’s cakes and he said it was cool looking but not very tasty. I do give Duff points for creativity and he clearly loves his fiancée but I am starting to think that he superior attitude is almost as bad as Buddy’s whining.

    Buddy vs. Duff

    I love Duff but I don’t like him on this show. He’s not nearly as bad as Buddy but he still seems to have a bad attitude. I also didn’t like the painting on his filigree work on the elephant. Brighter colors might have stood out more against the gold. I also think his cone sounded a little crazy with too many components and sweet on sweet on sweet. I just want to see him having fun. The problem with this show is that they both look like they hate being there.

    S44.E13: Don Cheadle / Gary Clark Jr.

    My takeaway: Roach skit was awesome Don Cheadle was awesome and should have hosted before You can’t satirize an administration that is already a joke Loved the hockey jersey at the end although I didn’t get it until he turned around This cast is particularly good at impressions Percussive recognition is my new favorite phrase

    The Masked Singer

    Did anybody else notice that they didn’t change Peacock’s voice for one answer? I am now even more sure it is Donny Osmond. I also think it’s interesting that Robin Thicke recognizes everyone by body language and gestures. Maybe because it’s something I don’t notice, but so far he has ID’d Deer by the way his shoulders shake when he laughs, Raven by her putting her hand over her heart and Bee by the way she holds her mike.

    The Masked Singer

    I am completely hooked on this show. I basically had no idea who anybody was but I pretty much agree with the internet. I was sure about Tori Spelling until this week’s clues. I also agree that everybody will be guessed in another week or two.

    S44.E03: Seth Meyers / Paul Simon

    OK, Paul Simon doing BOTW was beautiful. His voice is still great and the song is awesome. I didn’t expect it to hit me so hard but dang it was pretty. Every time I see Simon, though, all I think about is the story of him sitting in his car alone eating McNuggets. I can’t remember anything else about the story. Maybe I imagined it.

    S10.E15: Las Vegas Season Finale

    I finally finished the season and here are my comments. Drew has grown on me over the years, so not mad that he got some money. I also don’t hate the runs shown in the little window. I prefer it to WWWA since I get to see the entire run although they always seemed to show a run that was the length of the commercial so you could guess about how far they would get. Ever since I saw some episodes of Satsuke I have wanted a water challenge. A real ninja should be good at more than upper body strength. I need to see them do balance obstacles and the underwater one. I also like some of the new obstacles. Cane Lane is deceptively evil and a great addition IMNSHO. As with many others here, I am bugged by the sob stories. I particularly hate when they play up cancer cases or “tumors” as if they were life threatening. There were two examples that really bugged me. One was a woman with thyroid cancer. While nobody wants any kind of cancer, thyroid cancer can be treated with surgery to remove the thyroid and one pill of radioactive iodine to get any residual cells. The hardest part is that they sometimes have to go off any supplements for the pill so their thyroid is low and they can be exhausted but the pill has no side effects and you basically just have to stay home for 3 days until the radioactivity is out of your system. The total recovery is about 2 weeks, so it is hard to equate it with cancers like leukemia that require months of debilitating radiation and chemotherapy. The other was one whose wife was presented as having a brain tumor when she apparently had a pituitary adenoma which is a benign growth that affects your hormone levels, rarely requires surgery and is treatable with hormone supplements. Again, annoying to have but not a disease that will shorten your life span or significantly affect your functioning, once your levels are under control. I understand that they need back stories but they tend to sensationalize everything.

    Making It

    I liked Billy’s shed. However, he deserved to go on cumulative judging. I love a good lathe. I’ve always wanted to be able to make things out of wood. Khiem’s lamp was my favorite if you ditched the leaves but I still can’t forgive the turtle shell from the first challenge. I really don’t care who wins. I just want to hang out with Nick and have him show me how to do wood inlay for a tabletop and then let Khiem use his lathe to make me some legs and I will have a beautiful new dining room table.
  9. Isaac is the only one I actively root for to fail. His comments were too obnoxious. It would not have killed him to mention that he was not the only one to finish the course. After all, he still won.

    S10.E03: Miami City Qualifiers 2018.06.13

    I was so glad to see Stratis succeed. Not only is he one of the OG ninjas but he totally won me over with his AMA on Reddit about 5 years ago. Also add me to those with a girl crush on Jessie Graff. I’ve loved her ever since the chicken suit and I want to be her when I grow up ( even though I’m much older). I love to see little girls dress like her for Halloween.

    Making It

    I want to play in the taco truck although I’m not sure how I feel about the fish and animals with faces. This show did make me imagine what dinner at Nick’s house would be like (for anyone who doesn’t know, he is married to Megan Mullawy): Megan: Honey, they’re bringing back Will and Grace Nick: Good, it’s about time you started earning the money again. I’ll just be out in the workshop. I’ll be back for dinner. M: Don’t you even want to know how my day went? N: Not particularly, but I’m sure you’re going to tell me anyway. M: So Amy Poehler called and wanted you to do a craft show with her. N: Do I get to make things? M: No, I think you have to watch other people make things. N: I don’t want to have to judge what people make. M: I think you will just be a host. N: Hey, as long as they pay me and it’s only a few weeks. Just remember that you are now the breadwinner in this relationship. M: Love you too, honey. What do you want for dinner. N: Meat!

    Making It

    Before reading the thread I’ll post my unbiased opinion. I kind of like this show. Sure it has too much cheesy commentary but I like to see creative people make crap I would never have in my home. And sure it takes a few episodes of Tiny House Hunters to remind myself that I do not need or want crap like this in my home, but I will watch any show where creative people show off their skills (I even watched the dog grooming one) so I am in so far. I like paper guy and woodworking girl and the right person went home.

    S14.08 Who Gets a Pilot?

    I agree about Amy and the duck. That thick rim of unrendered fat was disgusting.

    Say Yes To The Dress: Atlanta

    Her dress was an A-line. With her square figure, the illusion necklines looked terrible on her. I know she wanted to minimize her shoulders but she has a small chest and the halter neckline really made her waist look smaller and the A-line draped skirt gave her more of an hourglass figure.

    S14.07 Can You Host an Icon?

    I just want to add that I was waiting to see Giada try a bite of Amy’s sandwich but they didn’t show them eating it, I guess because she didn’t. They did show her minuscule bite of the hamburger, though. Also, I saw some show where Scott Conant did that polenta thing so it is apparently a real thing to spread polenta on the table and dump on a variety of dishes to eat with it family style (polenta alla spianatora).

    S14.07 Can You Host an Icon?

    Wow do I hate Amy. Now I have to admit that I get frustrated and I’ve thrown a tantrum like that-when I was three! Right now I’m rooting for anybody but her, which will make no difference since she is clearly the chosen one.

    S03.E02: Bread

    Good to see there are some that agree with me about sweet “bagels”. Don’t get me wrong, Panera’s cinnamon crunch are delicious, but they are sweet rolls to me, not bagels. I think a bagel should only be topped with seeds, garlic, onions or salt. Just my opinion, but if it doesn’t go with cream cheese and lox I don’t consider it a true bagel (and yes, that does include cinnamon raisin) . Now don’t even get me started on cream cheese, which should only come in plain or veggie and should never include walnuts and honey if served on a bagel. In addition, Neufchâtel cheese is NOT light cream cheese. It is perfectly acceptable to eat but tastes completely different from cream cheese. If you are offering me cream cheese, don’t pull a bait and switch ( yes, I’m talking to you Mom). Rant over, I’m enjoying this show. I don’t dislike anyone and I don’t mind a little insecurity. I think John is a real standout so far but I also like both the medical folks-Danny and the young guy with glasses).

    Say Yes To The Dress: Atlanta

    I hate the wasted time on back stories of the staff. That said, this episode did have a lot of what I do like, which is showing how the consultants deal with difficult entourages (and Lori’s) daughter did do well in seeing that the daughter just wanted to be included and I thought it was the same veil) but more important, showing how they are able to choose flattering gowns for brides of different shapes and sizes.

    Best Baker In America

    I think Adam is a very good teacher. He always seemed to have useful tips and seemed calmer when he was explaining how to do things rather than trying to win. I would watch him on a baking stand and stir. Although I could do without the chocolate spirals once again.

    S14.03 Summer Bite Bash

    Katie is growing on me because although she can be bitchy she is also right. Last week they should not have included white potatoes in a dish where everything was supposed to be orange and this week they should have prepared for their presentation. I’m still rooting for Palak and Chris and surprisingly, they seem to be the ones who can cook. I saw where Amy was going with the blindfold and was just waiting for her to say it was such an easy technique that you could do it blindfolded. Still hate her, though..

    S14.02: Destination Videos 2018.06.17

    Thank you for not making me be the physics police and having to point out that if Amy could have been thought of as moving forward steadily at a consistent rate then it would be technically correct to say that she no longer had inertia (although I don’t think you can say inertia has stopped since it is a state of being). Momentum is clearly the better term and what she meant. It doesn’t matter-I hate her anyway.

    Best Baker In America

    I was not so surprised that LaSheeda did well. They showed a diagram of the layers and she said she knew how to make all of the components. I would expect all of them to be able to make daquoise, buttercream and ganache and there seemed to be some leeway in the actual layers. Still rooting for Adam. Most of what he makes is just so pretty.

    S14.E01: Are You a Main Attraction?

    While I didn’t want Adam or Amy back, they are miles better than most of this crew. I see potential in Christian and Palak and they apparently both can cook. They are really scraping the bottom of the barrel here. I almost miss Matthew.

    Chopped 2018

    Just a random comment for the idiot who said “I’m using agave because I prefer natural sweeteners over sugar.” Where do you think sugar comes from you moron? Have you ever heard of sugar cane?

    Comeback Kitchen

    I hate everybody. I think that they want Amy to win. Adam seemed to have the best combination of knowledge and cooking skills but I knew I thought that they had already given him several shots at shows. While Debbie may have improved (I missed her season) and using beans in her brownie was a good tip, she earns my hate for confusing gluten-free with healthy and for clearly not knowing thing one about nutrition. (Little hint, honey, if you want a lower-sugar cereal then go for Cheerios or shredded wheat and not generic Rice Krispies.
